Miles Robinson powered Arlington High to a 22-2 season and the 2015 Division 2 North basketball title. He was a Globe All-Scholastic pick after averaging 20.2 points, 12.1 rebounds, and 5.7 assists per game.
On Friday, the Syracuse University sophomore was the No. 2 selection in the MLS Super Draft, by Atlantic United. The 19-year-old Robinson, the ACC Defensive Player of the Year last fall for the 12-4-4 Orange, played club soccer for FC Bolts Celtic, and coach Brian Ainscough while attending Arlington High.
“Growing up as a kid, I loved to play soccer,” said Robinson in his draft speech from Los Angeles. “I have to thank Atlanta United for giving me this opportunity to prove myself at the next level.”
UCLA forward Abu Danlandi, a junior from Ghana, went to Minnesota FC with the first overall pick. UConn defender Jakob Nerwinski (Vancouver Whitecaps) and Providence midfielder Julian Gressel (Atlanta United) were the seventh and eighth selections, respectively.Dan Shulman can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org; follow him on Twitter @GlobeDanShulman
